Against company policy, plant breeder Alice takes home a newly created species as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe’ but as it grows, so too does Alice’s suspicion that her new creations may not be as harmless as their nickname suggests...
From visionary director Jessica Hausner (Lourdes), Little Joe is a cool, witty and unsettling sci-fi starring Emily Beecham (Daphne, Into the Badlands) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Mary Poppins Returns).
